IIBI Best Graduate Student Awards presented

The IIBI Best Graduate Student Awards were presented by IIBI Director Milan Sonka (below, left) at the College of Engineering Research Open House awards luncheon on Friday, April 20, 2012. The 2012 award winners were Xiayu Xu and Sajan Goud.

Xiayu Xu (above, right) recently defended her PhD thesis and will stay at IIBI as a postdoc. She has been working with Profs. Michael Abramoff and Joe Reinhardt. She is receiving this award for her ability to take an idea and almost fully and independently develop the scientific approach, the algorithms, the coding, the scientific experiments and the publication. She is able to collaborate effectively with her colleagues in engineering and with clinicians, which is crucial in her chosen field, ophthalmic medical image analysis.

Sajan Goud (above, right) has been working with Prof. Mathews Jacob for four years. His research focuses on accelerating challenging dynamic MRI problems by using novel signal/image processing techniques. His work on low rank, sparse regularized dynamic MRI reconstruction has been a significant advance in the state of the art dynamic MRI reconstruction algorithms. Recently, the ISMRM has awarded the Magna Cum Laude merit award for his work on Blind compressed sensing dynamic MRI. He was also short-listed for the young investigator award at the society for cardiovascular magnetic resonance.

About the Iowa Institute for Biomedical Imaging

The mission of the Iowa Institute for Biomedical Imaging is to foster efficient and cooperative multidisciplinary and cross-college research and discovery in biomedical imaging, and to improve training and education. This will be accomplished by:

  • Improving communications, both at the human contact level, and through electronic means; with appropriate external alliances.
  • Facilitating biomedical imaging instrument acquisitions, maintenance, and new device development.
  • Facilitating image data processing and analysis, and image file archiving and retrieval.
  • Translation of biomedical imaging research in a bi-directional manner, from bench to bedside.
